"This recipe caught my eye because I really like pomegranates. However, it's ice cream, not gelato. Gelato typically has a lower butterfat content that ice cream has, 3% to 8% for gelato versus 10% to over 20% for ice cream. Gelato is usually made with whole milk which is about 3% or 4% butterfat with sometimes a little cream added to improve consistency. This recipe looks delicious but with 75% of the dairy content being heavy cream it's ice cream, not gelato. In order to be called, "Ice cream" in the U.S. it has to have a minimum butterfat content of 10%. This looks like it would have that."
